From Mr Martin Castle

Sir: My sympathy lies with Jonathan Edwards, who is referred to in your front page article ("Double record for triple jumper", 8 August) as a "29-year-old vicar's son", despite having himself reached the top of his sport.

As a 25-year-old vicar's son, I wonder whether any of your other readers have experienced such labelling, or is it just a fate that befalls the son or daughter of a vicar?

Yours faithfully,

Martin Castle
